Thousands of students are struggling with these same issues. The smart ones get help. When you have a problem, do something to resolve it. Most questions can be answered and most problems resolved, just by talking to the right person (teacher, counselor, secretary, principal). u If you need academic help or if you have a class-related problem, talk to your teacher. u For most other questions or problems, go to the office or talk to your counselor. u If you ever feel threatened or harassed by another student, tell a teacher, counselor, or principal immediately. All students have problems and concerns they have to deal with. Some students, however, have problems that are so overwhelming that they can’t pay attention in class or concentrate on their work. Even though they may put up a good front, these students need to get help. Step Get Help When You Need It “Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.” Ziad Abdelnour 10
